    The government may someday be able to read your mind

    Neuroscientists are actively developing technologies to create more effective lie detectors, to determine if people have been at a crime scene, or to predict who may be more likely to engage in violent crime.

    As the accuracy and reliability of these experiments continue to improve, the temptation will be strong to use these techniques in counter-terrorism, in the courtroom, perhaps even at airports.

    And if brain imaging for lie detection is shown to be reliable, intelligence agencies may want to use it to discover moles, employers may want to use it to screen employees, schools to uncover vandals or cheaters.

    Better lie detectors? I can buy that. Predicting who is "likely to commit" violent crimes? Have you seen the movie "Minority Report"?

    I had the same thought. Just because someone may have certain proclivities toward criminal behavior doesn't mean they don't have the self control not to. None of us have wanted to choke the shit out of someone after a pursuit?

    Who hasn't walked in a bank and looked at the cameras and wondered if you could rob it? Of course you don't, it's just imaginative mischief. So the bank installs alarms that read your mind and you get charged for something you never actually would have done?

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    i call it good policing

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
